The Apaches will try to get in the win column on Saturday when Tyler Junior College plays host to RPA College Prep.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Earl Campbell Field at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium in Tyler.

TJC opened the football season two weeks ago with a 53-50 loss to Navarro in Corsicana, followed by a 42-10 defeat to Trinity Valley in Tyler last week.

RPA is a independent, privately owned sports and college prep program located in Arlington.

To enter through this gate you must be on a pass list for the football team, Apache Cheer, Apache Band, Apache Belles or the athletic department.

All other fans (home and visitors) will be directed to the entrance at Gate 7.

Tickets will only be sold on the day of the game and all sales are cash only. All general admission tickets are $5 with children 12 and under admitted free.
